Apple is launching a first of its kind photography competition to find the “best photos shot on iPhone”, with a panel of eleven photography judges from around the world (including Phil Schiller) set to select ten winning photos that will be featured on billboards in select cities, and Apple retail locations.
Former White House photographer Pete Souza, Brazilian photographer Luísa Dörr, and fashion photographer Chen Man will be part of Apple’s judging panel, with entries closing next month on February 7.
Within the terms Apple says photos can be captured straight from the camera, edited through Apple’s editing tools in the Photos app, or edited with third-party photo editing software, but must be shot on iPhone… of course!
Participants must be over 18, with Apple noting employees, including retail employees, along with their families, are not eligible to participate. Entries are being collected starting today, with users able to submit a photo on Instagram or Twitter using the “#ShotOniPhone” hash tag or submitting a high-resolution photo to firstname.lastname@example.org with the file format “firstname_lastname_iphonemodel.”

Earlier in the week Apple added to its Shot on iPhone series with a new video focusing on 17-year-old athlete Eddie Siaumau from American Samoa who has accepted a scholarship to a NCAA Division I university.
